Bamboe Koening Restaurant

Made by thousands of bamboo poles, this restaurant in Royal Casa Ganesha Resort in Bali is aptly named Bamboe Koening (yellow bamboo). Tourists and locals alike come to this place because of the building’s unusual twisted form and roof structure. The combination of bamboo arches, painted plywood ceiling, bamboo pendant lamps and black tile flooring creates a cozy ambience for dining. Although the building has no enclosing walls and the overlaying roof has gaps, with clever design, diners are still protected from direct sunlight and rain.

BAMBOO AS MAIN CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL

To meet the limited construction budget, the building must be built using affordable materials that are sturdy enough to last for at least two decades. Bamboo was chosen as the main construction material as it is inexpensive, sustainable, and is widely available locally.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

To reduce costs, the bamboos were sourced from a small-time local farmer in Bangli (north Bali) instead of buying from a big bamboo contractor. Experienced bamboo treatment consultants from Yogyakarta were brought in to the project site to teach local Balinese workers the various treatment methods to make bamboo last longer. They stayed on to train and supervise the workers, and afterwards monitored the process and progress via online reports.
